Cultural References
Sheila: Oh, I'm so excited. I've always wanted to see Cirque du Cheville!

Cirque du Cheville is a parody of Cirque du Soleil (which is French for "Circus of the Sun"). Cirque du Soleil bills itself as a "modern circus" that originally formed in Quebec, Canada, though it now has shows in Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida. Unlike a traditional circus that uses animal acts, it is all human-performance based, and includes contortionists, jugglers, feats of strength, clowning, and trapeze artists, etc. Each show features a storyline, and draws from other performance elements, such as busking, opera, ballet, and rock music.

Grandpa: No, Billy! You're gonna stay here and watch more MacGyver. We've gotta get all the Frenchy-poo fag-nasties out of ya.

MacGyver was an action-adventure show starring Richard Dean Anderson. It ran from 1985 - 1994.
